Stims, Ivf, Life

Day 6 of stims 
Meds stayed the same 
20 of lupron, 150 of Follistim, 1 vial of Menopur.  
Today I had bloodwork. 
My estradiol level is now 771 
I am very sore and tired today. Really feeling my ovaries. Also having back pains. 
I was joined by my DS this morning to tag along to my bloodwork appointment. He has been off all...


Stop judging

Posted by Sweet_Insanity in Seeking more, 24 November 2015 · 92 views

I wanted 4 kids. 
When I met my husband we agreed we wanted a big family. 
Now after nearly 9 years of struggling we are starting to agree to maybe one more. 
Or two. 
But is that bad? 
We do have a wonderful son who will be 9 in less than 2 weeks. 
Should all my attention be on him or is it okay for me to take all this time...


I've accepted he may be my one and only. Turning 30.

Today - well tomorrow really... I'm only a few hours off... I turn 30! 
I haven't been on here in months, mainly because (tho cycling has been on my mind daily) we haven't actively been cycling or really trying. Coming back on here I decided to reread my old posts. Reading them made me tear up, the person I was 4 years ago, 3 years ago and eve...


Back here after a long ... but good time!

success, EPP

I was surprised to see that my last post was in November 2013! It was after my miscarriage and I remember I needed to vent and talk about how painful the process had been.
Although I stopped blogging, TTC didn't stop.  Some ladies here might have followed my story on some threads in the forums, but here I am again, feeling like I need to share...


[Donation] The end ...?

Posted by plusle in Plusle's Egg Donor Journey, 26 August 2015 · 603 views

My participation in my IPs' journey as a donor has officially ended. But has my role as a donor end here? Or does it end when she conceives, or when her baby is born, or when her baby grows up?  
I know that my responsibility do not end here. For exmaple, if I were to come down with some kind of illness that has a genetic component, it will be my dut...

It is now 2dp5dt but it sure feels a lot longer than that. Trying to keep myself busy. Which is not all that difficult with my kids out on summer break this time.

Although the day just started, I feel OK. I have some minor cramping and nausea (which I'm sure is unrelated). Sometimes I wish I would have wrote down my symptoms I had prior to transfer. It...

For the past few years, I've been feeling like I don't belong in my family.  Family I mean my mom, sister, cousins on my mother's side of the family.  My sister is an alcoholic, my mother's life is in shambles since she left her dh 6 years ago, and I found out recently that my family except my oldest cousin has been making cheap shots at dh....


Ready to share!

Posted by amazing grace in amazing grace's Blog, 10 June 2015 · 1,349 views

I am finally ready to share my story with all of you and the one thing I wish for is that all you gain some hope from my experience. I do not wish for pity but wish for the inspiration to move forward. After three miscarriages and a failed IVF, switching my American clinic and gaining new perspectives at a Toronto clinic, I finally conceived in March thro...


Infertility is sucking away any happiness I had

Posted by Ljo in Ljo's Blog, 10 May 2015 · 1,395 views

Here I am sitting and writing another post with my bags partially packed in the bedroom getting ready to leave for a while. I just don't know how to stay in the same house with my husband and get along anymore. I'm miserable.
I just started the process of long protocol IVF this week and I feel totally and utterly alone. My DH couldn't make that app...


"When will I have grandchildren?" my mother asked

Posted by Anett Breczko in Before I Got Pregant - That 43 months, 10 May 2015 · 804 views

During the lunch, the TV was on. When I scooped out the soup, on the TV, they spoke on the news about subsidies for in vitro fertilization.
“When will I have grandchildren?”  my mother asked. She knew the month, when I had the last pill.
We didn’t have a good relationship, even at that time, but I told her about the bigger...

Infertility awareness

Hi beautiful ladies,
I have already asked for help with the 'Sprouting Hope' contest but now it has become more than just winning. <-- We don't have a hope of winning anyway. ;-)  I watched the story on CTV Halifax yesterday and they mentioned this very contest. It seems that people are getting hurtful messages and people are all up in arm...


My journey

Posted by BourneErin in BourneErin's Blog, 09 April 2015 · 1,225 views

My journey I met my husband 11 years ago, and even though I didn't realize it at the time, he was the person I am meant to grow old with. We finished school, bought a house, got married and along the way got our three beautiful animals (2 dogs and a cat) We have always known we wanted to have children so we started trying to conceive right away. That was about 4 yea...

donation, embryos

I have 4 embryos that I've been storing at New Life fertility centre in Mississauga. We no longer want to store them and would to DONATE them to a couple of couples who are in need due to not being able to conceive. I don't exactly know how to do this, but we have made an appointment for April 15 with our doctor at New Life at which p...


Poor guy

Posted by Nurse08 in The Love of a Sister, 02 March 2015 · 792 views

I feel bad for my little man today. He was circumcised. I am hoping it doesn't hurt him to much and he can just sleep it off. I see some more Tylenol in his future for tonight if he's still uncomfortable.
On another note I am so sad to not see Dr V anymore. I feel like I have become part of the clinic being there so much in the past 4 yrs. Maybe I will be...

People without children are not delusional about having them

Posted by MagentaSky in MagentaSky's Blog, 27 January 2015 · 1,204 views

I want to clear up a few wrongful assumptions about infertile couples, in the hopes that this will resonate with others in my same situation, and that it will help outsiders be more aware and sensitive. 
I noticed there exists a strange assumption that people who can't have children, or are experiencing infertility, are somehow delusional abou...


Day of FET and warm massage table

Posted by Hope baby in Hope baby's Blog, 23 January 2015 · 875 views

Question: Did a massage about 1 hr after my FET. I realized later that the massage table is heated maybe 15- 30 mins into the session. I then asked the massage therapist to turned the massage table warmer off. Does anybody know if heated table warmers are contraindicated right after FET , specifically right after? I know hot tubs, saunas and Jacuzzis are...

So I am considered healthy enough to transfer my last 2 frozen embies Friday! I have put all my strength, prayer and positive energy into the universe for this to work.  I was told there is a pretty and ugly one waiting for me. I keep telling myself it's the "ugly" one that's going to be the one that works. I did my weekly acupuncture yesterday. I wi...

Happy Newyear to all you lovely ladies out there, and I hope it will be a year full of enjoyment, love and happiness.
I had my NIPT test before the Christmas holidays. A ûber-expensive bloodtest, new to Europe and not covered by the insurance, but non invasive and it can determine a Down syndrome baby. Docters do not like to do the amnio anymo...
